Jasmine Pekoe is made from whole, young tea leaves that are covered with silver peach-like fuzz. The harvested leaves are dried with heat to halt the oxidation process, and then tossed with jasmine flowers to capture aroma. Jasmine was once traded along the silk route and is the national flower of Indonesia, Pakistan and the Philippines.
